Come on, Zinfoze.com, who are you trying to fool?

Your article from June 30 is titled, "Ancient South Carolina whale yields secrets to filter feeding’s origins."

A ScienceDaily article from June 29 is titled, "Ancient South Carolina whale yields secrets to filter feeding's origins."

Your first two paragraphs:
The blue whale is the largest animal that has ever lived. And yet they feed almost exclusively on tiny crustaceans known as krill. The secret is in the baleen, a complex filter-feeding system that allows the enormous whales to strain huge volumes of saltwater, leaving only krill and other small organisms behind. Now, researchers who have described an extinct relative of baleen whales in Current Biology on June 29 offer new insight into how baleen first evolved. 
The findings shed light on a long-standing debate about whether the first baleen whales were toothless suction feeders or toothed whales that used their teeth like a sieve to filter prey out of water, the researchers say. The teeth of the newly discovered species of mysticete, called Coronodon havensteini, lend support to the latter view.
